Laurinda's story

Laurinda is 40 years old and was born in the district of Guijá in the Province of Gaza. She went to school until the 2nd grade. She is a single mother of a 16 year old son, who is still in school, and she supports 3 nephews that are her responsibility because they were orphans.

She was born in Guijá because her father found himself in that district on a service mission, and her mother, on one of her visits to her father, ended up giving birth in the district of Gaza. But they always had a home in the district of Boane in the Province of Maputo.

She lives in her own home and has been a trader for 20 years. She has never worked for anyone. She has a monthly income of 3,500MT. This is her 5th loan with Hluvuku, and they are always used for the same activity. With a value of 25,000MT she intends to increase her stocks so she can satisfy the demand of her clientele. In the future she dreams of expanding her commercial establishment.
